What a great experience

Went there a while ago, absolutely loved it. It was about 40 degrees in the shade. Made it a hot day, but we all had fun and enjoyed a quick swim at the end.

I went here a few weeks ago with my colleagues as part of our work functions. The first part was fun. But when the guide put the raft in the middle of the rapids, all hell break loose. I got flipped out of the raft. Got trapped under the raft and scrapped my knees badly. Then got dragged through 1... More

Was a few years ago that we visited with Relatives from U.K. There were 7 of us on the boat and a capable guide on board. I stayed on shore taking photos but from the laughing and screams, it was a good time had by all. Great great fun.

If you are looking for a good family activity or team building event, then White Water rafting at Penrith is definitely worth considering. The man made facility built for the 2000 Olympics gives you all the thrills of whiter water rafting without the trek to Cairns or the long paddles between rapids on a conventional river. You get a full... More

Really enjoyed this. It's man made so very safe. Staff very polite and safety is their main priority. Good value for money. Was very tired after it but that's all part of it. Great fun

The Whitewater Stadium do vouchers and I bought my godson one for last Christmas, yesterday he used it and had a wonderful time. He has done whitewater rafting before, and loves the water, but it did stretch his strength to the limit. As he has done since he was a tiny boy, despite always being told not to fall in... More

Once the safety talk is over, it's on to the flat water for some team work practice, then away you go! Up the ramp, into the whitewater. It's a constant and controlled flow so there isn't bug variation each time you return here, but it's a great day out for family groups, work groups or bunches of friends.
